    How will Brexit affect non-UK students who are starting this year e.g. what about tuition fees ans student loan? Does anybody know how exactly will the educational system change? Are we going to have the same privileges as we were supposed to or are we totally F-ed?

    Several universities have sent out emails to EU students saying fees won't change this year.
    Considering the UK will remain in the EU for another 2 years, the current system will probably continue for this period.
    Once the country is completely out, it is possible EU students will get the same fees as normal international students as the government will no longer be obliged to subsidise them as they do for UK students.
    Quite likely there'll be new student loan companies to compensate for this.

    According to the latest news this afternoon, the Student Loans Company have stated that existing students will have their funding honoured, as will those EU students starting this September.
    However, future funding has not yet been decided.

    Since you have to re-apply every year, does this mean that they'll honour it for 1 year or for the full 3-4 years?

    edit: Never mind, I went and read their press release.
